Saturday, April 20 - Earth Day Celebration, McKenzie Park, downtown Panama City
Bay County Audubon Society will join local environmental and other groups to celebrate Earth Day. We will have displays and will need people to help set up and stay with the displays from 10:00 until 4:00. This is a great way to meet other people who care about our environment and also talk to them about joining BCAS. There will be entertainment, art, merchandise and food vendors. Please come out to support us and spend some time with us. We will be there around 8:45 a.m. to begin setting up our tent and tables.

Monday May 13th at 6:30 pm in Byrne Hall at St Andrews Episcopal Church, 1608 Baker Ct in Panama City. 

Please join us for our Annual Banquet and last meeting of the 2018-2019 season. The purpose of this meeting is to share a delicious meal, install our new officers, and recognize the recipient of the Conservationist of the Year Award. This year's event will be a covered dish dinner. Please bring your favorite side dish, appetizer, or dessert. The Board will provide the entree (with a vegetarian option) and beverages.
